Apple Books

When you just need the basics

Apple Books

iBooks main

For anyone who prefers Apple's own solutions for apps.

iBooks is Apple’s e-bookstore, and as such offers some impressive features. It is also one of the only apps that still supports purchasing a new e-book from within the app using your iTunes account so you can begin reading it immediately. The interface is well-designed and easy to use, with options for font size and style, searching, bookmarking, highlights, notes, themes, an in-app dictionary, brightness controls, and the app syncs your purchased books with every device using your Apple ID (although they can only be read on your iPhone or iPad). iBooks also reads books without DRM in ePub and PDF format.

Amazon Kindle

Because Amazon uses a propriety format for its books, you’ll need the Kindle app to read any ebooks purchased from Amazon.com.

Amazon Kindle

Kindle main

Because Amazon uses a propriety format for its books, you’ll need the Kindle app to read any ebooks purchased from Amazon.com. Given Amazon’s size and penchant for discounting books, it’s highly likely you own one or more of their e-books. However, even if you don’t, Amazon’s Kindle app offers one of the best reading experiences on the iPad, as it syncs your cloud-stored books (including annotations and bookmarks) across devices, includes an in-app dictionary, and can also display Mobi and PDF files that don't have DRM. Kindle also displays library books and, unlike other library-enabled apps, it syncs the library books, along with annotations and bookmarks. Indeed, you can even send personal documents to the Kindle app and store up to 5GB in your Kindle Cloud for download to other devices or at a later date. Some of the most prominent “read later” services even support sending your saved links to your Kindle email address, so you can sync those documents as well.

NOOK

Nook is the iOS version of Barnes & Noble’s popular Nook eReader, and it offers one of the most customizable reading experiences in one of the least customizable apps. The app’s best feature is its ability to totally control page formatting: readers can choose between publisher defaults or customize fonts, size, spacing, page colors, text colors, highlight colors, link colors, and justification. In fact, your customizations can even be saved as a theme to use again! Unfortunately, the Nook app (unlike the physical devices) does not appear to be able to read books not purchased in the Barnes and Noble store, which significantly undermines its value— except to those who own or have owned a Nook.

An Interactive Book App with great images, fantastic music, decisions, and multiple endings. Choose your path wisely and discover our multiple endings.

Sick and tired of his father’s slurs and insults, Louis decides to leaves behind a life of wealth and comfort, he wants to know the real world, what it is out there but before he can do that he enters the Dark Forest where he meets a young woman, but things are not what it seems, choose Louis Versetti’s path wisely.

One of the finest vehicles of the large Versetti fleet approaches the stately gates of the family residence, a huge luxurious mansion constructed with the finest materials to be found in the whole of Scotland. The car drives through lovely gardens for over seventy meters, but when it stops at the mansion’s front entrance, nobody steps out of the vehicle, as the butler patiently waits at the ready to welcome the vehicle’s occupants.

The sound of someone shouting can be heard when the car door opens after a few minutes.

That’s the last time I’m putting up with your slurs and your insults, yelled Louis Versetti, son of the multimillionaire Paolo Versetti.

Very slowly and calmly, Louis’ father steps out of the car after his son; he doesn’t follow him, he just looks at him with a hard and dismissive stare.

You think I don’t deserve any of this. Do you think I’m not worthy? Okay, so that’s the way it will be then; I will not accept a penny of your fortune; I will not accept anything that is yours. I'm leaving this house right now! Louis exclaimed energetically in a determined tone of voice, while his father just looked on with a smirk on his face, which, if anything, just provoked him all the more, making him even angrier.

Louis turns around slowly, and without hesitation begins to walk through the large garden, back towards the mansion’s gate. No one makes a single sound; the only thing to be heard is the sound the shoes make as they walk down the paved driveway; those fine shoes which were manufactured in Italy, his father’s native land. His father came to this country when he was very young and single-handedly became a millionaire in just ten years by creating multiple companies.

Louis is about to reach the gate, and all he’s taking with him to face the world on his own is just a leather jacket and some money in his wallet.

I’ll show him what I can accomplish on my own, thinks the 23-year-old, who feels he is ready to forge his own path in life.

Before leaving the grounds, he turns a little to the right to look at the small storage shed where old things are kept, and where he knows his old motorcycle is stored. It’s been years since he last used it, so it must be very dusty and maybe even a little rusty, but Louis is almost certain that it still works.

Although Louis had been determined to leave on foot, he thinks it will be much better on that bike. He is about to go and pick up the motorcycle when he remembers it was a gift given to him by his father when he was 15 and stops in his tracks to think for a moment:

Choose his path wisely, what would you do?
